The halo is worked with the same decor as the rim of the riza.
Its outer edge is also decorated with cloisonné enamel.
The riza is completely gilded, except for the dress of Saint Nicholas, behind which is the gilding of the riza.
Two stamps are marked in the lower edge of the icon.
One on the left is the master inspector's stamp of the city of Moscow, recognizable by a delta with a woman's head with kokoschnik and an 84 grade of 800/1000 silver.
On the right is the manufacturer's master's stamp with the initial M.C. corresponds to the master Sokolow M. F.
